With their first attempt at the end of 2018, ever-reliable German audio brand Sennheiser produced the best pair of true wireless earbuds I had used up to that point. So I was understandably excited to try the second generation when they were announced earlier this year. The hefty price point of $300 remains the same, but battery life has been doubled and active noise cancellation has been added. There’s also a white model this time around if that’s more your style. Comparisons to Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM3 and Master & Dynamic’s MW07 Plus — not to mention Apple’s AirPods Pro — are inevitable given the price and feature set, but Sennheiser’s latest buds do more than hold their own in this company.

True wireless earbuds have been increasingly popular since Apple launched the AirPods, but the new trend is for them to come with active noise cancelation. Sony's WF-1000XM3 were among the first, followed closely by Apple with the AirPods Pro. German competitor Sennheiser wants to keep up, and just announced an updated version of its Momentum True Wireless buds, which now feature ANC and improved battery life over the previous iteration.

If you're looking for a pair of headphones that offer great audio quality but don't need active noise canceling, the Sennheiser HD 4.40 is worth considering. When it came out, its official MSRP was $150, but you can now get it for just $70 on Amazon. Read More
Good headphones with active noise cancellation usually cost around $300, especially if you look at the Bose QC35 and Sony WH100MX3. However, there are cheaper alternatives from other reliable audio equipment manufacturers, such as the Sennheiser HD 4.50 SE. The latter cost about $200 when it came out in 2018, but it's now dropped to just $80, which is 60% off the original price. Read More
There's no dearth of true wireless earbuds options out there, but most deliver sound quality that's good-ish, at best. To get superior audio quality, you usually have to go wired or at least settle for a wire between the earbuds. German audio company Sennheiser's late entry to this market, the Momentum, bucks this trend and is arguably the leader in audio quality — though it comes at a steep $300 price. If you have your eyes on a pair, Fry's currently has them on sale for $200, or $100 off.
German company Sennheiser has a sterling reputation for creating high-quality audio products, so I was understandably enthused when I learned they were making a pair of true wireless earbuds. These products have improved a great deal since they first burst onto the scene, but they still tend to lag behind wired equivalents in terms of sound and can’t compete with bulkier Bluetooth sets in battery life.
Since Sennheiser is pretty late to the true wireless game, you would hope its engineers have taken their time to craft something superior to the many rival products already on the market. As it turns out, that’s not far from the truth. Read More
